Upholstery Springs

Upholstery Springs have brought me some of the most inspiring moments and the range of work I have been able to conjure out of this material is ever growing and without end.  The simple shapes combined form an historical range of our cultural past that continues to surprise me.  It appears as if I am not alone in this observation.
